Record Collector[3]

Record Collector awarded the album with 4 stars and in its review, Lois Wilson called the record "another groovy (imaginary) soundtrack to a 1960s spy film, part-nostalgia, part-originality, wholly fun".[3] In their top 200 albums of 2018, Louder Than War voted Return of the Fabric Four at No. 83.[4] In an online video premiere of the single "Saturday Club" for Louder Than War, Ioan Humphreys states: "Returning after a nearly-two-decade hiatus, the band certainly seem like they are having a right laugh in this renaissance of their career".[5]
